I read in the documentation but it doesn't work, that you can create
a single column section that goes across an 8.5x11" page, and then
after that, you can set the page to 2 columns. I mean, you can do
that, but it subsumes the Section into one of the columns, not
allowing it to spread across the whole page.
You should not need the first section: the full-width part can just
be a normal part of your document.
I am wanting to do a Chapter Opening page, different from my other
pages, and have the chapter heading go all the way across the top,
but still have a 2 column body page. I have created a 2 col section
before and left the base page as single column, and that worked, but
I constantly had to watchdog the section from bleeding over to the
next page, so that is not my preferred solution to this. Is there a
way for a Section to pass across both columns of a page?
Forget the section for the first part, and make the rest of your
document or chapter - the part that you want to be in two columns - a
section. But - here's the trick - set the two-column property not to
the page but to that *section* itself. You will find a Columns tab
in the Section dialogues too.
I trust this helps.
